I’m Grateful I Didn’t Make It to the NBA (Here’s Why…)

I’m Grateful I Didn’t Make It to the NBA (Here’s Why…)

It’s a new week, so I'm back with some more motivation for you to start your week. 

Today, we're gonna start off with a question...

Are you letting life happen TO you or FOR you?

I was kicking back the other day and just reflecting on life and I realized…

I’m so glad I never made it to the NBA.

Looking back on it, I’m thankful for how things played out because I wouldn’t be where I am today otherwise.

I’m super grateful for every last bit of it – trust me. 

And this is the point I wanna share with you…

Are you letting life happen TO you or FOR you?

See, many times, things won’t go your way.

You’ll get cut from a team…

You might suffer a career-ending injury…

Life is gonna kick your ass and test you…

But remember, life doesn’t happen TO you – it happens FOR you.

For me, not making it to the NBA was the best thing ever for me.

It’s important to keep that at the forefront of your mind because overcoming pain and loss is not going to be easy.

But your outlook is what’ll determine how far you go in life.

Never forget that.
